3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BBD 1/13/16. Clear amber pour with a dark ruby cast. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention.
Outstanding nose of orange and light pine over biscuit coupled with a bit of earthy spice.
Light body with a texture similar to that of water but coupled with an outstanding oily slickness. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is very good. This is a hop flavor focused beer with moderate bitterness that is balanced with toasty biscuit and caramel. Like the nose, orange dominates with pine and spicy elements in the background. Along with moderate bitterness in the middle, caramel makes a strong appearance. The finish is semi-dry and a hint of alcohol astringency arrives over a lingering slightly sweet rind/pine bitterness.

Bomber. Pours copper with a big fluffy off-white head that has good retention. Aroma of wet pine needles and a trace of fresh grapefruit. The taste, likewise, is more piney that citrusy and set in a light caramel malt base that is slightly sweet. The palate is medium, finishes sweet. Overall: Very easy drinking IPA, good stuff.

Bottle. Pours a transparent light orange with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; fresh Warrior hops with a pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel.

Poured from a coupla bombers (@5.99 each), looks reddish with a one finger white collar. This has got a little bit of a lot of things but nothing jumps up and takes the lead. Some sticky resin, pine, average to good alcohol content, metallic, dry, and a bit creamy. Was just looking for more from the hops.
